REG has designed some graphics for the launch of Fluidity’s Spring Summer Collection this week. In case you’re wondering next season’s key trends are crop tops, shorts, sheer fabrics, neon highlights, white leather, lace and sportswear.
It was from Hibu, the multinational directories and internet services company.
I thought it was unusual to see an ad like that in the paper, and then thought about the differences in service between them and us:
• a closer relationship with the designer is possible with a small agency: a short communication chain, and a responsive and collaborative relationship.
• no limit on design revisions once the brief is agreed. We aim to give clients their perfect design.
• wider design support: the skills and experience to transfer the look and feel of the website to print materials, or even develop the visual identity itself.
Here are a few of the websites we’ve designed in collaboration with our clients:
We also designed the visual identity for Mike Smith, Daniel Spring and Fluidity.
REG designed the exhibition graphics for the Juneau Projects exhibition Welcome to Happy Redoubt, currently showing at King’s Cultural Institute until 15 December.
Time Out put the exhibition in their ‘top 5 art exhibitions’ to see on its opening weekend. And we had a feeling from the start it was going to be great fun.
The exhibition turns the Inigo Rooms at Somerset House into an outpost of a post-apocalyptic world in the wake of a technological meltdown. Inspired by this world controlled by robots, where only basic technology is available to humans, we reproduced images of two of the robots using a DIY screen print effect. The typography had to stay within the guidelines of the Kings College brand, but we apocalypticised the King’s typeface it by turning it into a rubber stamp and force justifying the lines of type to reflect the staccato speaking voices of the robots.
You can meet the robots in their special promotional short film they have released on YouTube.
A very sweet thank you note from one of our lovely clients, MyCake, whose website we’ve been working on. It came with a giant, head-sized chocolate!
Our brief was to redesign some of the pages so they were clearer to navigate and more friendly and consistent in appearance. Here’s the new design.
The Victoria and Albert Museum invited us to talk about our work as part of the “Graphic Gathering” event at the V&A, pictured above. Emily and Ruth from REG Design were two of the designers invited to speak, along with designers including Pali Palavathanan from Johnson Banks (shown presenting Johnson Banks work on stage above) and Cecilie Maurud Barstad from Gilles & Cecilie Studio.
The event was for school and college students considering a future in graphic design. Hopefully we inspired them!
REG designed the exhibition graphics for ‘Sir Hugh Casson PRA: Making Friends’ which is currently in The Tennant Gallery at the Royal Academy of Arts. On until the 22nd September.
We have designed the first three of the republished Worrals books for Indie Books; back in print after 50 years. Written by Captain WE Johns – of Biggles fame – they are about the women of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force during the Second World War. New cover artwork and illustrations by award-winning graphic novelist Matt Kindt.
They were launched last week at the RAF Museum Hendon. Worrals herself is pictured with the new editions. Buy them from RAF Museum shop.
The Koestler Trust are the UKs best known prison arts charity and have been awarding, exhibiting and selling artworks by offenders, detainees and secure patients for over 50 years. The Awards Scheme inspires offenders to take part in the arts, work for achievement and transform their lives.
We are always amazed, humbled and enthralled by the graphic design entrants into the Koestler Awards and feel privileged to be able to donate our expertise to this incredibly worthwhile cause each year.
View some of the amazing work from this year’s awards at the upcoming Southbank Centre Exhibition opening 24 September 2013.
